"Sam is now being called Fred, because we already have a Sam.... Fred is amazing. He is putting on weight well, getting along with everyone and yesterday was even romping a little - trying to play! His vet check was somewhat uneventful. He did have tapeworms and whipworms, so has been treated. He continues the lyme treatment and is receiving ongoing treatment for his eyes. It appears (from scars) that he has had masses removed from inside his eyelids more than once. He still sees in both eyes, but not well. He follows me around the house and seems very happy, as are we. My husband and I have two other VERY elderly dogs and we have a passion for them.

Fred loves blueberry Sammy Snacks (cookies) and chicken jerky and eats like a horse. I think at some point we will cross over from worrying about him being too skinny to having to watch his weight. You would not believe how he has filled out in the past couple weeks!

Bless his heart, help Sam find a home to spend his last few years. 
WHO IS HE? *From Zella: This is Same, a senior cocker spaniel that was brought in as a stray to the Harrisburg Humane Society.  He is shaved down because his coat was very matted when he arrived.  Sam is a sweet boy, and needs to get out of the shelter asap. The vet guesses he is at least 12 years old. A shelter is no place for any dog, let alone a senior boy. Can anyone offer foster or forever care? All he needs is a safe, warm, loving home to live out his remaining years.  Please contact me directly if you can help.  Thanks!  Zella
WHERE IS HE? Harrisburg Humane Society, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
